Arai Corsair V Jolly Roger edition....

Ordered me a new helmet today! Finally I get another Arai for myself! 2010 Arai Corsair V..... I found some discontinued already models and ended up with the Jolly Roger version that is the Josh Hayes signature model! So I got a $900 helmet for $450!!!!! I have always loved Arai's like no other helmet, I think this will be my third one and I am so excited! They are pricey and you must love yourself to own one but I have never until now had their flagship model!! Good jobs rock!!!




Arai Corsair V Jolly Roger Helmet

The Corsair is Arai’s flagship model. An Arai helmet is not the product of compromise, of a "profit" point, or a board of directors. An Arai helmet is the product of obsession, an ongoing obsession to design and build the best helmets possible. This year Arai took the Corsair V Replica helmets to a new level. With several new features, you’ll see why the world’s best wear the Arai Corsair V Helmet.

Features:
Arai’s exclusive, adjustable new AirWing® is designed to greatly reduce drag, turbulence and buffeting resulting in more comfort and additional top-speed.
The new wider eyeport required a new, wider faceshield. Called the Series "I" faceshield, it is exclusive to the Corsair-V. The new shield fits even more flush against the shell than the previous Corsair’s.
Newly equipped with ‘’Air In Stabilizer’’, an additional air intake between the front and rear intake in the diffuser and large toggles. The Air-In ports help accelerate air out the back, increasing airflow without increasing the size of the holes in the shell.
The biggest difference between the newest generation of Arai’s Hyper-Ridge feature and its predecessors sticks right out at you: Whereas the previous ridge curved in, this one flares out. This results in a larger opening at the helmet’s bottom, making the helmet easier to get on and off.
Both cheek pads and the neck roll can be removed in seconds thanks to the advanced Emergency Release System. Rescue and medical workers can easily remove the newly designed removable neck roll and the cheek pads by just pulling the pad release tabs. This offers extra room within the helmet, making removal of the helmet much easier and minimizing the risk of additional injury.
The Corsair-V’s neckroll is now removable and replaceable, and adds an additional exhaust vent through its bottom via shallow channels in the EPS liner, adding yet another ventilation outlet for the removal of interior air.

Can you share with your wristtwister friends where you came across this deal? I too am in the market for a new Arai.

Thanks!

just so you know, I've never seen the Arai Corsair RX 7 sell for more than $500. They might call it a sale, but they are just selling them for what most people are willing to pay for one. not what i would call a blowout sale on that one.

I actually found it on eBay at Flyin' Brian's store!

The best price I could find on a black frost one was $701 so I don't know where anyone is finding them for no more than $500???? Nor do I care, I feel like I got a great deal and since I'm paying for it, that's all that matters!!

Thanks for the link. They have a great price on the Quantum II which is what I have now. Anyone know if the new versions are that much better than the Quantum II?

congrats on the new lid. it seems like you got a decent deal. i looked around, the same helmet is 450 to 500 at other sites. all the "blow out" sales, from what i have seen, are to make room for snell2010 helmets. to bad you couldnt get a different edition, that jolly roger is one ugly ass (or fugly) graphic IMO.

do you need earplugs with that model?

I bought my jacket from flyin brian a couple years ago. Great to deal with, and great prices on most stuff. Still have to shop around though.

I liked it better than the Monster Energy drink one, at least it's a flat black! I'll take the Jolly Roger graphic for $200 discount, what the hell?

If I don't have tunes in my ears then I am most likely wearing earplugs anyway so that won't bother me if I do need them!

Congrats on the new Arai Woody. Of course you do realize that you'll have to wear an eye patch now when you wear that helmet.

you were right about that, the monster energy is not that great. i would have gone with the haynes as well. you got a top notch brain bucket at a good price, thats all that matters.

I agree Wes, thanks! Unlike my sister who calls me the other day to ask me where she can get a sissy bar for her Shadow Saber 1100, I ask her what, you gonna start making your date ride bitch or what, she snaps back, "no god dammit, sometimes I need a place to put my helmet if I dont feel like wearing it"!!!! WTF? I guess she forgot about the week in a fucking coma she had as a child after they CUT her helmet off her head after trying to split a curb with her skull!!! Fucking dumbass, I'm gonna let her have next Tim I see her!

bro, thats rough. if i woke from a coma from a major bike accident, if i got back on, you wouldnt be able to pry a helmet off my head. you sure there wasnt any permanent damage to her grape?

when you get your helmet in and try it, pm me with a ride report if you get a chance. i have stayed away from top o' the line helmets in the past due to the need of earplugs in most models, but these recent prices are to hard to ignore.

woody, dont mean to threadjack, i just happened to be checking this website the same time i did the last post

* * * * | **| || motogadget * * * *

except for the price, these would be kinda cool. kill 2 birds with one stone. get rid of mickey mouses and eliminate the gauge pod all together. it would clean up the front of the bike. i dont think i have heard anybody mention this company.
